Teetering on the Edge…

 If only the edge that I teetered on was the roof!

Sadly it’s more like the edge of sanity.


And although I have much to post and catch up on… I can’t seem to focus tonight. Maybe it’s the late hour… or maybe it’s the “edge” thing! I don’t know. But for now I will just tell you that I am (mostly) done with painting the mud room. I have two doors, one window and the “pit” left. I am waiting till I get some brown paint for the “pit”. There is no sense in puting white trim down in there when I know it will not last more than a day of looking… well… white.

I stopped painting Friday evening (with a two and a half hour unplanned break to take JJ into urgent care for a suspicious bright red rash around a little scratch that he got on Monday. He had been telling me that is was bugging him all week and I basically told him to suck it up… it was just a little poke! But it turned out to be poison ivy! I didn’t know you could get it even before there are leaves blooming on it!) and then was gone all day Saturday, (more on that later) so I didn’t get a good picture before all the “junk” got thrown back into the room. But here are some pics I took in there today.

I know we have a ways to go before it is nice and finished – as far as counters and cabinets and all, but I just have to tell you that this little space right there is sheer heaven to me! I have gotten all… ALL the laundry done in one day for the past two weeks now! It’s crazy! CRAZY I tell you! I don’t ever remember THAT happening! And since I rather enjoy the laundry anyway… it is just the greatest thing to have a nice (and clean) place to do it now! And I gotta say… I LOVE those machines!

But it’s a little disturbing to me now  – that I wanted a nice place to do the laundry, since I was doing it almost every day, and now that I have it… I get it done in one day. What the heck?

Okay… not much of an update… but at least you can see the room.

My sweet oldest son just brought me a “cheer up” (or “butter up”… not sure yet!) gift of some little white doughnuts he got on his way home from work! Although not the best thing to eat – period – but especially at 1 am, I ate them anyway! He said these would be good for my soul! And they were!

My soul needed them – it’s my heinnie that didn’t!


Here’s hoping for the return of some sanity in my sleep!
